How many times has chaos posted threads stating "we need this to [make us not lose]?"
It doesnt matter how they change the game. We've shown a greater ability to adapt and overcome anything. Chaos just picks something and thats it. This time they've chosen bunker-comp Templars/Clerics. I'm not sure why, maybe for winning forts? It clearly is not good for keeps, since much of a keep fight is not done in the ToL room.
But even after multiple campaigns getting their face mashed in, they still hop into the next one with the bunker comp again. They could have been using this time to reroll/recraft/rework their comp. Over half of our guild is now in wartribe gear. There could easily be a very large gear gap between us and Chaos, but no, same ol' stale bunker comp.
We were running (more testing) druids at the beginning of one of the recent the CWs, they don't fair well vs. bunker comps inside a fort TR, so guess what? We adapted, we got back on the clerics. We also made sure our heavy hitting melee always had reveal weakness running, we built armor pen into weapons as a priority etc, we have block punish, we have plaguelord.
We'd love a new challenge, we've been implementing "ignore the templars, kill everything else" strat for months on end now.
Friendly fire is one of the absolute worst ideas I've seen from the Help Me Not Lose crew in a while, but hell, I wish they'd do it, quickly. For one CW, just so we could illustrate, again, how we would overcome that and win. I already know how we'd do it. I'd love to see that happen, even though its a horrible idea.
